First Reading for the 3rd Sunday of Advent Year C

Zephaniah 3:14-18A

Summary: God has removed your punishment and is with you, bringing joy and renewal. Rejoice and do not fear, for He delights in you.

Rejoice, Daughter Zion

Shout for joy, O daughter Zion! Sing joyfully, O Israel! Be glad and exult with all your heart, O daughter Jerusalem!

The LORD has removed the judgment against you he has turned away your enemies; the King of Israel, the LORD, is in your midst, you have no further misfortune to fear.

On that day, it shall be said to Jerusalem: Fear not, O Zion, be not discouraged! The LORD, your God, is in your midst, a mighty savior; he will rejoice over you with gladness, and renew you in his love, he will sing joyfully because of you, as one sings at festivals.
